To celebrate the important role sports clubs play in the fabric of local communities, Origin LPG is offering eight $10,000 grants to sports clubs around the country.
Here at Origin, we’re proud of the role we play in supplying homes, local business and sporting clubs in the community with their gas needs.
From heating the shower at the end of the match, to cooking the snags to celebrate a big win (or commiserate a narrow loss), LPG is essential to many sporting clubs around the country. This is especially true for teams located in rural towns, where LPG delivered to the door is often the only source of gas available.
We launched this community program to reward and recognise the great work done by the local sporting clubs, while also highlighting the role that LPG plays in the community.
“Sporting clubs, especially in regional Australia where I grew up, are the lifeblood of local towns”, says former NRL, QLD and Australian Rugby League legend, Darren Lockyer.
“This is a fantastic initiative by Origin LPG to give back to local sporting clubs and the community, and a great way for these clubs to secure additional funds to support our future sporting superstars.”
To be eligible to receive one of the $10,000 grants, sporting clubs who use LPG were invited to apply during the month of February 2017 by describing in 250 words or less how their club would benefit from this money.
Eight clubs will be chosen to each win $10,000 – with four of these having the opportunity for their club to feature in an Origin LPG TV commercial.
Winners and their stories will be announced online in April 2017.
